Magnetic Nanoparticles Fry Tumors

Agamous Child Aperture Science Did this years ago (111 comments)

For this next test we put nanoparticles in the gel. In layman's terms, that's a billion little gizmos that are gonna travel into your bloodstream and pump experimental genes and RNA molecules and so forth into your tumours. Now maybe you don't have any tumours. Well don't worry, if you sat on a folding chair in the lobby and weren't wearing lead underpants we took care of that too. - Cave Johnson Aperture Science CEO

Researcher Claims Magnets Can Affect Blood Viscosity

Agamous Child Cave Johnson here (175 comments)

Just a heads up, we're gonna have a super conductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest, we're throwing science at the walls here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do.

Requiring Algebra II In High School Gains Momentum

Agamous Child This is Assinine (490 comments)

But not because it "should" be required already, or that the study doesn't correlate.

It's stupid because this is just another way for politicians and businessmen to attach a fix to public education without actually having to do anything.

Let's get rid of Phys Ed (Budget Cuts), Music (Budget Cuts), Art (Budget Cuts), Any language but Spanish (Budget Cuts) But oh hell let's put them all in Algebra 2, then they'll be smart and productive!!!

Some kids are going to college (I don't count 2 year degrees or online schools here) and they need Alg.2, some kids are not, they don't need it. 90% of the population doesn't even do arithmetic every day in their regular jobs, they don't need Alg.2.

All you guys spouting how you took it, and "wow you didn't know that it wasn't required," well let's just say that you were oblivious to all the "regular" ed kids who took Consumer Math. I was in the higher math classes too, but that didn't mean that everyone took them.

Google Gets Quake II Running In HTML5

Agamous Child I'm sorry - the point?? (258 comments)

I am duly impressed I guess. What I just saw was not worth playing when you can play games already on your PC (PS3, XBOX360) with much better graphics and quality.

Madoff's Programmers Indicted

Agamous Child I guess the moral of the story is to have morals. (147 comments)

If your boss asks you to break the law, the argument "I was just following orders!" doesn't hold up according to the authorities, especially when your boss decides to "cooperate with them" and throw you under the bus. Always question the motives and the legality of a system you design, and if your boss asks you to break the law, tell them that you won't do it, and if they persist, explain that you are going to contact authorities immediately.

An Interview With F# Creator Don Syme

Agamous Child Not even going to RTFA (267 comments)

Totally marketing garbage. Man is probably a great guy, with a lousy job. But F#, really? even .NET is ripping off Java. Microsoft talks about building "ecosystems" but the way they do it, everything in the ecosystem has to have a M$ logo on it. Why can't they just inter-operate and integrate with outside software?

Did anyone else read the stuff this kid has on his site? Moxie is a Sailor/Hacker/Anarchist/Squatter/Hitchhiker enigma. Holy shit this kid has sailed the CA coast in the worst conditions alone. I am duly impressed and green with envy and depressed that I am not living a life like his.

Agamous Child Re:Good policy (776 comments)

Your assumption is that slashdotters have wives or girlfriends, so the whole argument is moot.

Try this exercise:

Imagine your wife or girlfriend.

Now imagine your wife or girlfriend, with a can of soda constantly in her hand, weighing 300 pounds.

(Next exercise: Imagine your wife or girlfriend imagining you with a can of soda constantly in your hand, weighing 300 pounds.)

Gathering Social Network Information into one Interface

Agamous Child Agamous Child writes  |  more than 6 years ago

I would like to put this question out there to the programmers:

What currently maintained open source projects are building tools to consolidate all of the social network information that exists for a user?

I haven't seen a project that incorporates a single view to gather up friends and friend activity into one interface.

I have looked at Open Social, but that isn't the same thing.
